Rural Whitby covers a vast area of Whitby located to the North and West of all the other core communities in Whitby.  Boundaries could be considered Lakeridge to the West, Townline to the North, Thornton to the East and the Taunton North and Brooklin communities to the South, however there are some areas along the west border that fall into Rural Whitby also.


Rural Whitby is country living while being on the edge of the city.  There is a fantastic mix of housing options ranging from older homes to newer modern houses ... most with larger lots that are much harder to find in the city.  The homes for sale in Rural Whitby can be found just minutes from all the amenities Whitby has to offer.


There are some lovely hamlets in Rural Whitby such as Ashburn, Myrtle and Myrtle Station.  In 1968 the Town of Whitby amalgamated to include Brooklin, Ashburn, Myrtle and Myrtle Station.
 

Ashburn is located just north of Brooklin.  It was originally named Butler's Corners and changed its name to Ashbourne in 1850.  The name was chosen because of the Asheries built to produce potash.  Ashburn is a destination of choice for many discerning buyers as it offers a homes that are more "unique" then the typical home found in cookie cutter subdivisions.  You can find anything from smaller homes to newer large "estate type" homes with fantastic properties just minutes north of the city.


Myrtle is another hamlet founded in the mid 1800s.  It is located 6 kms north of Brooklin.  In 1884 Canadian Pacific Railway built a line from Montreal to Toronto with a station 1 km north of Myrtle and the community of Myrtle Station grew around it.
